The official Letter says that only verbal explanatory assessment is allowed in the 1st grade. Moreover, if the answer is wrong, the student should not say the phrases “didn’t think”, “didn’t try”, “wrong”, it’s better to manage with the replicas “do you think so”, “this is your opinion”, “let's listen to others”, etc. In addition, the following are not subject to any evaluation: the pace of the student's work, the personal qualities of schoolchildren, the originality of their mental processes (features of memory, attention, perception, etc.). The teacher can record the absences of the child and maintain their own schedule of student progress to adjust the program for them, as well as share their thoughts with parents in person and at school meetings.

“In the 1st grade, children need to be taught self-esteem. It is reflection that forms the skill of conscious teaching. And when the time comes for marks in high school, the student will be able to adequately relate to both “good” marks and “bad” marks.
It is important for parents to organize a check of the completed task, to teach the child to independently check their work, not to be afraid of mistakes and correct them. Also teach the child to carefully check his written work and if it is poorly written, seek help from online cv editing services and correct them. Competently organized reflection helps to understand the amount of what has been learned, to identify deficits, to formulate gaps between knowledge and ignorance.Unfortunately, it happens that parents and teachers make excessive demands on first-graders and children begin to worry about this. Sometimes children themselves are very anxious because of their studies. If your child often comes home from school upset and says that he is not succeeding, it is better to approach the teacher and ask if he is really not coping, what is not working, how you can help. In any case, it is important to support the child, do the task with him (not instead!), suggest the way, praise for what has already happened.
I always tell parents that the main thing is to love the child, to love the way he is. It’s not scary to make a mistake, if it doesn’t work now, it will work out another time.”
